When I was an old woman turning older, I met you and the clock turned back for me. It was surreal but like the sun interrupting a cloudy day, you burst upon my loneliness. And I embraced myself like never before. Ever.
Sundancer, we tiptoed Then threw caution To the summer winds - Aha!
I was lost in an avalanche of emotions. And the wonder of your love and patience reigned over me.
Like autumn leaves Your words and deeds Healed me into acceptance
So now I know love. Real love. The kind that has deepened with time. Sparked by passion. Survived battles. Strengthened by forgiveness. Sailed into the night.
I drown in you Winter is no longer cold The fire burns bright
And I am no longer afraid. For I have known what it is like to be truly loved. No one can take that away from me. The greatest tragedy would be to forget.
But in this light Of springtime dizziness Love is in the air
